My Journey from Reading to Writing

For as long as I can remember I’ve always loved to read. I could read books fast, even in one day, and take in the story naturally. It left me wanting more. I definitely wasn’t the best reader in the world, but I had a craving for it.

Any unique story gets me engaged, as long as I’m interested in the topic, the writer, and the content. If I was going to go back to uni. studying literature or film would be on the top of my list.

As I’ve gotten older I’ve turned towards different types of content like blogs, social media, magazines, and other pop-culture content as well as books. Even though these aren’t always paperbacks or hardbacks, they’re still providing me that engaging read which I love so much. It’s just presented and written in a different way.

I still read paperbacks today, and I’m slowly getting more and more into it this month by reading one of my favourite classics; 1984. The other day I made a Good Reads account and up to now I’m loving it! It’s helped me to remember all of the books I’ve read throughout the years, some good and some bad. Who remembers Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck? A classic! Go check out my account for my list.

In my heart I’m a creative… it’s just something I do, as well as come up with really odd, wild ideas. Expressing myself in a creative way is just something that I need to do to stay sane, to let out my creative energy. This shows in what I studied in uni. and what my interests are. I’ve been writing blogs and social media captions (sometimes badly) for over 10-years. I didn’t realise it then but a MySpace and Tumblr bio is still classed as writing, and creating an ‘about me’ page on Piczo is too.

Pair my creativity with my love for reading and you would only naturally come to writing, which is exactly what I’ve been doing for years now, and right now as I type.

I’ve always known that I wanted to write a book. I have so many crazy ideas and beautiful stories that I want to share with the world. I’d love to craft some sort of twisty plot that was covered in loads of literary devices. But before I start I’m going to write more blog posts, read more books, write down ideas, and watch more films.
